Monte D6647

Monte was an urgent rescue when his time was up on 10/29/19 at a crowded city shelter.  No one came thru to save him, so we did. It was fate, and a hero foster home stepped up for him just in time. Poor Monte was abandoned by his previous people who left him living in a backyard since he was a puppy. He was sad and needed basic vet care needs from poor diet and no vet care. Despite all he has suffered, Monte is very sweet, social friendly with people and warms up to other dogs within minutes. Monte has some skin rash around his ears (probably fly bites) and poor coat. We took care of his neuter, medications, and blood test (healthy). Monte is now happy and resting at his hero foster home with another dog.

We will learn more about his personality from his foster home as he gets healthier with raw, holistic foods, supplements and tons of TLC. He needs basic training.  Shelter vet did neuter and check his teeth for possible broken pre-molar but didn't require extraction.  Monte got his Miracle! More info. to come.

11/2/19 Update:  Monte is doing well.  He was tested fine with a male shelter dog and was fine with a small male dog at his transporter home. At this foster home, he is not friendly with her female 4 yrs large dog. We are not sure if he needs more time to feel comfortable around her female Husky mix dog, just chemistry, or he may prefer male dogs. Foster home is juggling. He loves people, friendly, snuggling, lounging with people and going hiking. Everyone adored him when they met him at our Dog Showcase and he was great with everyone. Very sweet. Will sit for treats.

Monte needs an experienced home. He has been boarding at a kennel since 11/24/19. Our volunteers who visit him say he is super friendly, loved his walks and very sweet. He will sit and down for treats. Other dogs were barking but he ignored. Monte is healthy now and seems younger now. Like 4-5 yrs old vs what shelter told us. He loves long walks and great hiking buddy. He would love to be your best friend!!!

Update 2/8/20:  Monte is doing great at his super hero foster home.  He loves having someone around, fit right in, easy going and very afffectionate.  Eating well and enjoys his walks.   Happy to meet other dogs.  

Donations greatly needed and appreciated to help pay for Monte's boarding. Very costly.
